At Last! Vetiver Is Ours!


We are thrilled to announce that Sub Pop is now the proud owner of Vetiver! In the parlance of our times, we simply issued some commercial paper to raise the requisite capital and now Vetiver is ours. Or, that’s how we “understand” these things to work anyway…

Anyway, because we assume you all to be discerning music fans (attractive ones at that!), we’re sure that you’re already familiar with Vetiver, the ever-evolving musical home-base of singer/songwriter Andy Cabic. We’ve been nurturing an increasingly devoted fondness for their work, both recorded and otherwise, since the release of their debut album in 2004. The new album, bearing the evocative and fairly badass title, Tight Knit is complete and will be released on February 3, 2009, giving it the distinctive honor of “first post-Bush release on Sub Pop!” I know. Weird, right? The album is easily their most varied yet and we can’t wait to let it off the leash to roam free.

We mentioned that we’re thrilled already, right? Well, we are.
